It only has some minor things found with lintian:

| I: otf-ipaexfont source: duplicate-short-description otf-ipaexfont-mincho otf-ipaexfont-gothic otf-ipaexfont
| P: otf-ipaexfont-gothic: no-upstream-changelog
| P: otf-ipaexfont-mincho: no-upstream-changelog
| P: otf-ipaexfont: no-upstream-changelog
| I: otf-ipaexfont: capitalization-error-in-description meta package metapackage

I guess that the first and last ones could be improved, right?

Also, being pedantic here, there's a trailing whitespace in the
changelog, that could be removed. :-)

Another one: the package has the otf- prefix, but the fonts provided
have the .ttf suffix. They are, according to the file command, "TrueType
font data", despite having OpenType features like Standard Ligatures,
Expert Forms, Fractions, Slashed Zero etc.

I guess that the font files could be renamed to .otf, then?
